    B.Tech Aeronautical Engineering Admission Process

    There are two ways through which admission into the B.Tech in Aeronautical engineering programme is given. One through engineering entrance exams and the other through management quota seats. In the entrance exam process, the candidates have to produce their valid entrance exam score card, i.e either a national-level entrance examination scorecard or state-level entrance test scorecard. Candidates can also apply for admission in select institutions which conducts its own entrance test. On the basis of the candidates’ performance in their respective qualifying exam and entrance exam, a merit list is prepared by the institutions followed by the conduct of counselling rounds. Final seat allotment is done after the counselling rounds conclude. 

    Some institutions reserve a certain number of seats as management quota seats and candidates willing to apply for admission in these management quota seats have to just fulfil the minimum eligibility criteria. No entrance exam scorecard is required in this scenario. 

    B.Tech Aeronautical Engineering Cutoff

    The admission to Aeronautical Engineering is done on the basis of cutoff as released by the different states/counseling authorities. The cutoff consists of the opening & closing ranks for admission. The closing rank is decided on the basis of rank obtained by the last candidate that has been admitted through the last counseling round. That means the rank of the last admitted student will be the closing rank for the next counselling. The candidate must acquire a rank up to the closing rank to get admission.

    B.Tech Aeronautical Engineering Career Options and Job Prospects

    Although there are a lot of career opportunities for Aeronautical engineering graduates, the opportunities in the core profile are better outside India. However, there are a few government organisations that offer high paying jobs in this field. Following are some of the organisations that offer jobs in this field:

    • Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA)
    • National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL)
    • Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE)
    • India Space Research Organization (ISRO)
    • Civil Aviation Department
    • India Space Research
    • Samtel Avionics

    Since there are better space centres outside India, the scope of this field is much better once you have pursued Masters from universities abroad. An aeronautical engineer can expect a salary between Rs. 6 to 11 lakh, depending on the college of graduation. An aeronautical earns up to $ 107,700 per year in US.
